Un-holy Desecration

A female band in Russia chooses an English language name that is provocative and attends a Christian church to interrupt the worship with a profane political song.

A hate filled man enters a Sikh temple and shoots people at random.

A black Christian church is burned by racist white men.

A mosque is bombed by a different sect of the same religion.

Desecration of houses of worship has been going on for thousands of years all over the world. It is a way of expressing hatred for the different and trying to exert some control over others. We can not stop people from hatred and anger toward others and it is a problem world wide.

I feel that any house of worship no matter what religion should be respected and should be a safe place for those who worship there. In America we are guaranteed freedom of religion and we have almost all the worlds religions represented here.   I pledge my self to respect all houses of worship! Are you willing to make that same pledge?
